The Wonder Years Was Everyone's Favorite Show, But Where Are They Now?

- Page 1

The Wonder Years is one of the greatest shows from the '80s. It helped launch the careers of some very recognizable child actors, while simultaneously becoming one of the most iconic shows of a generation. It was nominated for an Emmy after only 6 episodes aired on television.

The cast had a lot of kids involved and in order to find the right one the creators Neal Marlens and Carol Black interviewed five different casting directors, all of them said the same kid: Fred Savage. He led the show with what the creators called a "natural quality" and helped propel it to the iconic level it remains today.

But where is our favorite family now?

Fred Savage - Kevin Arnold

He became the youngest actor ever nominated for an Emmy as the Lead Actor for a Comedy Series for his work on The Wonder Years. Savage was already well known as the grandson from The Princess Bride, but this show launched him to fame in a way no one could have predicted. He has been in a bunch of TV shows and movies since, including Austin Powers: Goldmember and more recently the show The Grinder with Rob Lowe.

Danika McKellar - Winnie Cooper

It really was her big break out role after appearing in a few small parts on shows like Captain Planet and the Planeteers and The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! She later appeared on The West Wing for an arc and then started doing a lot of voice over work. She has done voices for a lot of cartoon heroes for shows like Young Justice, DC Super Hero Girls, and Transformers: Rescue Bots. She also is an incredibly accomplished in the field of mathematics. She has published many papers since getting her Bachelor of Science in Math and has a theorem named after her that she coauthored with Professor Chayes and fellow student Brandy Winn.

Josh Saviano - Paul Pheiffer

The smart best friend plays an important role in Kevin's life. The show focuses a lot on their relationship and how they deal with their problems, whether it's attending different schools or meeting new friends. Josh Saviano seems to have taken a few cues from Paul, as after the show wrapped he decided to go to law school and become a lawyer. He now works in New York, only returning to TV for three episodes of Law & Order: Special Victims unit between 2014-2016.  

Dan Lauria - Jack Arnold

Kevin's dad was a bit of a tough guy. He was a war veteran, served in the Marines, and worked with electronics for a while but eventually opens his own business making furniture. Lauria himself seems to have been busy as can be since the show ended. He has had countless parts on popular shows including Grey's Anatomy, NCIS: Los Angeles, and Pitch.

But what about the rest of the family?
